2010, Osiris Projects, Kyle Rhea, Geophysical Survey_Additional Notes

  • Published Date: 01/09/2010

OOn the instructions of Sea Generation (Kyle Rhea) Ltd, Osiris Projects werecommissioned to undertake a geophysical survey covering the proposed Kyle Rhea
current turbine development site. The survey was undertaken using Osiris Projects own dedicated survey vessel, MV So
Fyne during the period 4th May to 8th May 2010. High-resolution side scan sonar, swath multi-beam, single beam bathymetry,
magnetometer and sub bottom profiler data were acquired along all survey lines, in order
to accurately map the seabed within the survey area. This package contains additional notes regarding the geophysical survey.

2010, Osiris Projects, Kyle Rhea, Geophysical Survey

  • Published Date: 02/01/1900

On the instructions of Sea Generation (Kyle Rhea) Ltd, Osiris Projects were commissioned to undertake a geophysical survey covering the proposed Kyle Rhea current turbine development site. The survey was undertaken using Osiris Projects own dedicated survey vessel, MV So Fyne during the period 4th May to 8th May 2010.The primary objectives of the survey were ? To provide a detailed hydrographic map of the survey area, including information on bathymetry, shallow geology, seabed features and magnetic anomalies, together with a video record of the seabed.? To identify areas of exposed bedrock and to characterise the seabed in terms of sediment/rock type and benthic habitat and epifauna. ? To use the data to identify known, unknown and potential archaeological material as part of the Marine Archaeological EIA work.
High-resolution side scan sonar, swath multi-beam, single beam bathymetry, magnetometer and sub bottom profiler data were acquired along all survey lines, in order to accurately map the seabed within the survey area. Main survey lines were run at 50m spacing. In addition, a series of seabed grab samples and video footage were taken in order to ground truth the seabed classifications.

South Coast Regional Environmental Characterisation Project – Interpretation and Analysis

  • Published Date: 01/06/2007

“The aim of the South Coast Regional Environmental Characterisation (REC) is to provide an environmental reference statement defining marine and seabed conditions within the study area. The REC is based upon the interpretation of MALSF survey data acquired in 2007 and a more extensive historical survey dataset acquired by the British Geological Survey, Cefas, Sussex Sea Fisheries District Committee and the South Coast Dredging Association (SCDA). A review of existing literature was also conducted. The characterisation and interpretation included an assessment of the geological, biological, oceanographic, archaeological, fisheries and conservation attributes of the area. Analysis of the benthic infauna and epifauna communities have been combined with an evaluation of their associated physical conditions to produce a habitat and biotope assessment based in part on the European EUNIS classification system. The results produced by the characterisation project will be significant for marine spatial planning by providing a more comprehensive dataset to inform and improve decison making on developments such as conservation, fisheries, heritage, aggregates and renewables.”

Development of an Appropriate Hierarchical Classification Scheme for the Supervised Classification and Accuracy Assessment of acoustic ground discrimination system (AGDS) Data _Report

  • Published Date: 01/01/2008

Increasingly zonal management through spatial planning is seen as a tool to reconcile competing resource demands in the marine environment. The Government’s commitment to a system of spatial management is recognised in national marine policy, a key function of the intended Marine Bill is develop a spatial approach to marine planning. The process and efficacy of spatial resource management is informed by the availability and quality of relevant seabed descriptions. Currently broad scale habitat descriptions at a scale relevant to the inshore zone are not available to marine resource managers and those undertaking resource exploitation. The rationale of a project undertaken by the Sea Fisheries Committee was to develop methodologies and datasets using existing SFC assets to inform a consents decision making process. This work has a range of applications with particular relevance to marine conservation and fisheries management and the aggregate extraction consenting process. Previous studies by the SFC, funded through the ALSF, have developed datasets to describe inshore fisheries and tested the ability of SFC assets to map the seabed. During this project the SFC explore the relevance these methods to management and their ability to provide information relevant to marine spatial planning.An acoustic ground classification system (AGDS) collected data on routine fisheries patrols during between 2006 and 2007. To interpret and validate this acoustic dataset a bespoke survey using a towed video system was undertaken at 270 field sites in the summer of 2007. The data was used to create a hierarchical classification scheme which enabled a supervised classification and accuracy assessment of the AGDS data.
